So here's Midnight Mission. It's a really beautiful blue shimmer. I'm pretty sure that China Glaze describes this one as a navy blue frost...but it's not a frost. Just a metallic-y shimmer. The formula on this one wasn't overly fantastic. The longer I had the bottle open the thicker the polish became. Wagon Trail, my favey-fave polish, has this same problem so I'm used to working with it, but it's still annoying. What you see in the pictures is two coats. This is a beautiful polish, especially in the sunlight. It glimmers. Good job, China Glaze.
And now for things with which I am obsessed as of late (and by "as of late" I mean over the past few days):
1. Lip stain. Betsy let me try her Cover Girl lip stain while she was here and I loved it. The number on the bottom of hers is 430 but I can't find that one in stores anymore. Instead of that I got Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain in Flame.
It definitely looks like a red-orange (right up my alley, if you know me) but it goes on a bit pinker. It's a nice color, but I prefer something louder. I really like the idea of a stain, though. It goes on smooth, it's easy to be accurate, it feels like you're not wearing anything and it lasts a long time. The Just Bitten line also comes with a balm in case your lips feel dry (and they will). I think I'll try a bright pink one next.
2. Repo! The Genetic Opera. Cannot describe how ridiculous/amazing this movie is. Have you seen it? HAVE YOU? Let me break it down for you: Giles from Buffy (Anthony Stewart Head) as an organ repossessor. Paris Hilton as...well, a slutty heiress (that's a stretch). Sarah Brightman. SARAH BRIGHTMAN! The whole thing is sung. There is choreography. There is gore. There is a guy who looks like this.
I'm already anticipating buying a t-shirt. I have already purchased the soundtrack from iTunes. I have already created a ringtone for my phone. Basically this is the BEST THING pop culture has brought me in a LONG TIME.
That's all for today. What do you guys think about China Glaze Midnight Mission? Does anyone have any lip stain recommendations? I'm open to suggestions. Also...has anyone seen Repo!? So. Awesome.
